Define 'Common'..

Read this statement:
California law generally prohibits individuals from carrying concealed weapons. Such laws are common throughout the United States.
Really?  That's why EVERY state has some form of concealed carry law w/ the overwhelming majority being 'shall issue' or better? 

Now this statement on law isn't coming from some anti-gun puppet, this is from the Dean of the UC Irvine School of Law.

So is he lying and/or deliberately ignorant? There are no other choices.

This is the mentality of gun control in action.

I could see an interpretation that would make the statement basically true, if by 'generally prohibited' he means 'you need a license to do it." That converts the right to a privilege which the general public, being unlicensed, is prohibited from exercising.

Joel beat me to it.

Think of it this way: every state has a law that 'generally' prohibits killing another human, but there are exceptions to that 'general' prohibition for self defense, etc.

I have heard such statements referred to as a 'true-ism'*...something technically accurate, but meant to instill a different concept in the mind of the recipient than what's *actually* being said.

*not to be confused with a 'truism'.

I read the article. The one thing that struck me hardest was, calling The 9th Circiut Court, conservitive. How far left is the Dean of UC Irvine shcool of Law???
